I don't visit the forums often, so I hope I'm posting this in the right spot.

My PS3 is connected to an HDMI cable. There is no other audio or video cable attached to it. It runs great most of the time, but about once a week when I boot up my PS3 I get a message saying that an HDMI cable has been detected and asking if I'd like my audio and video to go through the HDMI cable. I find it odd that my PS3 would ask that since I'm using my HDMI cable to read that question. I click OK and the screen goes from what looks like 480i to 1080p, which is the resolution I have my PS3 set to output. There's a message asking if I can see everything fine. I click OK and it brings me to the dashboard, which no longer has my theme on it, but after that everything runs okay until this message show up again.

This is a minor annoyance. I can always just put my theme back on the dashboard and the message doesn't show up every time I turn on my system, but it still bugs me. Does anyone have any idea why this would happen? I keep checking my settings and my system is set up to use the HDMI cables. Any help or suggestions would be appreciated.

Unfortunatley, I don't have another television :(

My 360 doesn't have this problem though.

I have a very strange problem with my Wii and wondered if anyone here experiences the same thing.

Every time I go to the Wii shop channel my TV fills with static so I cannot see *anything*. I does clear for about a second at random intervals so I have to use that time to memorize the location of the buttons I want to click on. As you can imagine this is *very* frustrating. I also get static whenever I'm playing a Wii game and there is a loading screen. After the load ends everything is fine, but it is annoying when, for example, a few seconds before a cutscene is going to play my TV goes nuts.

At first I thought it might be my component cables but they look fine. I bought new ones just in case and I still have the same problem.

Does anyone have any idea what might be causing this?

Thanks in advance!

I tried playing it online soon after it came out and discovered the online portion of the game is broken. Now I only play it when friends are over, which isn't often.

KOTOR for 10 bucks is a no brainer. If you like RPGs you should pick it up.

So... I've had my 360 for about 10 months and haven't had any problems until now. When I turn my 360 on I can hear the game running on my TV, but I get no picture, just a black screen. At first I thought it was my cables, but after connecting and reconnecting them I still have the same problem. I even went out and bought brand new component cables. That had no effect.

I've never heard of this problem before. Has anyone out there had this happen to them?
